* An episode in the second season has a RunningGag that hangs a lampshade on [[spoiler:Johnny and Crystal's StrangledByTheRedString status]]. [[spoiler:Crystal sends out Lockjaw to guide Johnny to a secret meeting spot. [[EpicFail They never reach for it.]] [[BrickJoke Even at the end]].]]
* There's an episode in which [[spoiler: Sue not only is BrainwashedAndCrazy, but given an EvilCostumeSwitch that swears by EvilIsSexy.]] By the end, [[spoiler: when she's released and her "controller" is defeated, she's still dressed up in it, and [[CovertPervert Reed]] is VERY pleased...]]
* Doom has some surprisingly funny SophisticatedAsHell moments
** In "A Blind Man Shall Lead Them," when he has the Four and Daredevil dead to rights
--> '''Doom:''' I've made an interesting improvement in your ventilation system. I shall now suck all the air out of the room, and like the martyrs of Masada, you may watch each other die. *{{beat}}* Have a nice day. *EvilLaugh*
** When Ben is (seemingly) beaten to death by the Hulk and Doom congratulates him, Hulk laments making Alicia cry, to which Doom replies with an ''utterly'' disinterested "She'll get over it."
